education, passionate all have resources, all have a voice. why aren't we fixing this? >> i think first of all the greatest issue is recognizing the problem. i don't think this problem is clear 10, 20 years ago. i think when world war ii started our army was smaller than in netherlands. we didn't realize how bad hitler was. how terrible nazi party was. we have to recognize it. i think the phase now we say there's 45 million kids in public school. probably half of them, two-thirds will get a decent education, the rest not so good education. that is not only a problem, it's a tragedy. so i think recognizing a problem and people like yourself who are leaders in that just getting the word off. this is not acceptable. this is bad for everybody. that's the first part. that's starting to happen now. there's several things happening to make it better. i think that's very positive. >> rose: are you convinced that we have the will to do what's she is in the will? >> well, i think -- if more people recognize the problem then they say we can do something about it and then things will happen.
